Here's a list of menu options that I was given by my WC for the Barcelo Palace. They all look pretty good. I'm also open to any ideas for center pieces. I would love to see pictures if anyone has any!

It's your wedding and you can have it in either Spanish or English I'm sure. Especially if you are doing the legal part in Mexico as well. In fact I've heard the legal part IS done in Spanish and translated if people want. That's a good question for your TA. :)

Yes, I had my wedding at the Church June 27, 2008. It was beautiful. The priest was mexican but spoke english, but he was still a little hard to understand. But everything worked out. When is your wedding? I can can you info and let you know what you need to do before you get down there.

Are you making pre-mexico brochures, and "welcome to mexico" brochures for your guests? Does anyone have a list of the hotel restaurants, or a template I could look at? I have a rough draft, but am a visual person! Thanks!

Also, they say they don't accept outside photographers, but my WC ASSURED me, with a day-pass it's fine. I'm just not going to make a big deal and hope it's all ok :)
Hi!!
I'm also getting married at the Barcelo on December 8, 2008. They do allow you to bring outside photograpers into the resort as long as you either book them a room for the night or get them a day pass for the day. I'm flying my photographer in so she'll be staying at the resort with us.

Also, can you please send me that brochure that's being mentioned? I'd so greatly appreciate it because I don't even know where to begin with that.

mjm160 - For the menu options, do you need to let the WC know in advance what you're guests will be having or does everyone get to pick their entree at the actual reception?

Thanks Ladies!!

Our reception will be right on the beach, so hopefully the weather will be ok :) (I'll have an indoor back-up plan just in case) I'm telling my guests to bring a "light jacket" in case there is a breeze. As far as the brochure goes, I do not have a template as of yet, but my computer genius FI is going to create them and I'll post when finished. :)

    • Congratulations to Wedding Planners and Families of Bride and Groom. Cheapfaremart, an Orlando based Online Travel Agency offers Cheap Group Flights for Wedding Group also.
    • Thanks! I would love to get quotes from a TA but as I said I have a hard time finding a specialized one in Canada. I hope someone can point me to the right direction. 
    • The use of TA is instrumental in booking a destination wedding for several reasons: Namely, TAs have special rates and promos they can offer you, including perks of complimentary rooms and upgrades. Wright Travel actually has a Bride & Groom Fly Free Promo, which gives couples up to $1,000 cash back. These are perks you can take advantage of by working with a TA. Also, most agencies also do not charge any service fee, so you are essentially having the expertise and convenience of a travel agent without paying a dime. Experienced agents will also have valuable insight into the best property to host your wedding, and if they are familiar with your resort, they can also offer you and your guests tips on how to make your stay even better. Good TAs will also have close connections wiht the wedding department, essentially benefiting you throughout the planning process. Securing a room block is also important to ensure your resort does not run out of rooms and also to secure a group rate. Lastly, having a travel agent handle you and your guests travel plans is vital so that you don't have to deal with it. Anything can happen when it comes to travel and if you don't have an agent, your guests will turn to you for help. As a former destination wedding bride, I did not work with a TA and I regretted it. Having to answer a million questions from guests on where to stay, where to book, where to go, drove me nuts. When it comes down to the final stretch of the wedding, it was the last thing I wanted to do when I already had a million things on my plate wedding wise.  Here's a more in depth article regarding the benefits of using a TA.  https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/planning/10-reasons-why-you-should-use-wright-travel-agency-for-your-destination-wedding-r2439/  
    • We actually did our legal wedding at home -- a quick and easy ceremony at the local courthouse about a week before our destination wedding. Afterwards, we just went to lunch and shared a few celebratory cocktails 😊We did this so we didn't have to deal with the legal requirements (arriving early, blood test, etc.) you must abide by in Mexico. For us it worked out perfectly and our ceremony in Mexico was our official wedding with all our family and friends. 
    • Hi there, So I read a lot of you recommended to go through a TA rather than booking things yourself so I tried to reach out but haven't really been successful. I wrote to Wright Travel not realizing that they were only serving the US. So all I really need is actually the booking of the hotel and the wedding arrangements. Most of our guests will stay at that hotel but I know some of them will probably look for other options. Our guests will arrange their own flights as they are coming from different countries (Canada and Europe) and I don't see group flights coming together as they will all stay different length of time. So my questions are, why exactly would I need a travel agency to book the hotel and the wedding? I worked in event management for years and have organised events way bigger than that and could probably organise it myself. If we decide to go with a TA, does anyone have any recommendation for a Canadian TA? Thanks all!
